Question about KitchenAid KGSA906PSS Gas Kitchen Range
I bought a used range that needs to be converted where should i start.
By getting a gas license! LOL
Remember to tip your waitress! I'll be here all week - Goodnight!
Alright...got it out of my system...here we go:
1. Find out if a conversion kit exists. Answer: Yes it does...in fact it came with it originally. If it had me doing the install, I would have taped the kit to the back of the range.
....and I quote, "IMPORTANT: Your cooktop is factory-set for use with natural gas. If you wish to use L.P. Gas, an L.P. Gas Conversion Kit is included with your new range. Models with the TripleTier™ Flame Burner will include a TripleTier™ L.P. Gas Conversion Kit and a kit for standard ranges. See “Installation Instructions” for details on making this conversion.
2. Obtain the kit. This is more difficult than actually doing the conversion. Unless you have a dealer nearby, I'd simply call Kitchenaid directly: (1.800.461.5681) They will either send it to you directly (quite possibly for FREE) or point you in the right direction.
3. The kit will come with instructions, but briefly, here's what you're getting into: The kit will consist of 1-3 orifices. These will reduce the amount of flow going to the burner(s).
Why? Two reasons: a) Propane burns hotter and b) Propane moves quicker than N.G.
You might need: Allan Keys, Screwdrivers, Channel Locks, Adjustable Wrench.
You'll just disassemble the manifold, install the orifice(s), and GO!

GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.

Your Tappan dealer can help you with this. You have a good named unit so it shouldn't be a problem. You could also check with your gas company as to where to get the conversion parts.

I converted a gas range several years ago, and all that was required was that I had to 'seat' all of the orfices - or tighten them down so that they are completely seated (do not overtighten!). It has been working great for years!
